PREFACE. 



The second volume in the York registry of deeds is marked, on 
a fly leaf at the beginning, " The Second Book of Records." Like 
the first, it is worn and battered and has been supplanted, for ac- 
tive service, by a copy. Samuel Tripp, register, certifies the copy 
as transcribed by him in 1870. The binding of the original record 
is shattered, but fortunately only one folio, 106, is missing. The 
number 171 was accidentally omitted in marking the folios, and 
the absence of 60 and 61 is to be explained, perhaps, in the same 
way. The marginal notes indicating the grantors and grantees, 
and an index covering three pages, are in the handwriting of Jo- 
seph Hammond, register from 1695 to 1710. 

Edward Rishworth opened the new book Feb. 12, 1666. He 
had accepted a commission from John Archdale, the representa- 
tive of Ferdinando Gorges, the younger, in 1664, and in Novem- 
ber of that year had joined with Archdale and other officers of 
the Gorges government in a missive addressed to the governor 
of Massachusetts and his assistants, requiring them to surrender 
their pretensions to authority within the province of Maine. The 
county organization had been dissolved. The general court which 
met at Boston in May, 1665, ordered a county court to be held at 
York as usual, in July. As there was no resident magistrate act- 
ing in the name of Massachusetts, Ezekiel Knight of Wells was 
appointed to that office. If Edward Rishworth should neglect 
his duty as county recorder, he was directed to turn over the 
books and papers to Peter Weare of York, who was to take his 
place. 1 But in June the king's commissioners for New England 
arrived in Maine and organized a new government under his maj- 
esty's immediate protection. The affairs of the province were 
committed to eleven justices of the peace appointed by the com- 
missioners. Henry Jocelyn of Black Point was the chief justice, 2 
and in his absence Robert Jordan of Richmond's island was to

preside. Rish worth was one of these officers and continued to 
serve as recorder. When the Massachusetts magistrates arrived 
to hold the county court in July, they learned at Piscataqua that 
the militia had been called out to hinder their proceedings by 
force if necessary, and with this intelligence they returned to 
Boston. 

The new magistracy had been in power for nearly eight months 
when Rishworth opened his " second book of records." The sys- 
tem of administration was excellent. The province was divided 
by the Kennebunk river into two judicial districts. Courts of 
common pleas were held in each district three times a year, and 
courts of quarter sessions four times. Appeals were reserved at 
first to the commissioners for New England, but in November, 
1666, the justices were authorized to choose three of their own 
number to sit as a court of chancery and hear and determine any 
appeals which might be taken according to the custom of England. 1 
A general assembly in which the towns were represented by dep- 
uties, met annually in Saco. 

The last assembly was held in May, 1668. The royal commis- 
sioners had been recalled. Two of them had returned to England. 
Colonel Nicolls remained in New York as governor of the Ameri- 
can territories of the duke of York, and Samuel Maverick also 
resided there, " in the Broad Way." The general court of Mas- 
sachusetts assembled in May, and instructed the secretary of the 
colony to issue warrants to the Yorkshire towns, directing them 
to send in their votes for county officers to a court to be held at 
York on the first Tuesday of July. Assistants John Leverett and 
Edward Tyng and Deputies Richard Waldron of Dover and 
Robert Pike of Salisbury were commissioned to keep the court. 
Governor Nicolls, hearing of these proceedings, interposed a sol- 
emn protest, but he had no longer any authority to interfere and 
his objections were disregarded. 

The Massachusetts commissioners arrived at York, with a mili- 
tary escort, on Monday, July 6, and opened their court the next 
day. The justices to whom the government of the province had 
been entrusted, presented their commission, issued in the king's 
name and approved by him, 2 but their opposition was overcome, 
as a Massachusetts historian explains, "partly by friendly rea-

soning and partly by a harmless show of force." 1 When the votes 
were counted, it was found that Edward Rishworth had been 
chosen recorder, but his election was overruled and Peter Weare 
was appointed in his stead. 2 Weare was also elected county 
treasurer, and Ezekiel Knight was chosen an associate, or county 
magistrate. 3 

Peter Weare was born in 161 8, 4 and was about 22 years old 
when he arrived in Maine and acquired, in common with Basil 
Parker, a house and lot, probably at Piscataqua. The grant ap- 
pears to have been made by John Willcox, agent for Sir Ferdi- 
nando Gorges, and afterward confirmed by Thomas Gorges. In 
May, 1613, Weare and Parker both witnessed the conveyance of 
the Newichewannock tract by the sagamore Roles to Humphrey 
Chadbourne. In July of the same year, Governor Gorges granted 
to Weare a point called the Gurnet's ISTose, on the southwest 
branch of Agamenticus river. In 1644 Weare bought a houselot 
on the east side of the river, and in 1646 received a town grant of 
marsh on the northwest branch. But in 1651, he sold all these 
scattered tracts and acquired the estate on the north side of Cape 
Neddick river where he finally settled. He also owned twenty 
acres on Little river. With other citizens of Gorgeana, afterward 
York, he took the oath of fidelity to Massachusetts in 1652 and 
became a freeman of the Bay colony. After this date his pro- 
motion was rapid. In 1656 he was elected a selectman of the 
town, in 1659 an associate, and in 1660, though still residing in 
York, a deputy for Kittery to the general court at Boston. In 
1661, and frequently afterward, he was a town commissioner, or 
trial justice. In 1662 he was a selectman again, and in 1663 town 
clerk. In 1665 he again represented Kittery in the general court, 
and his testimony concerning the source of the Merrimac, taken 
in Boston in May, was forwarded to the king by Governor Bel- 
lingham to support the claim of Massachusetts to jurisdiction not 
merely three miles beyond the river, but to a parallel of latitude 
three miles north of the head of the river, including the province 
of Maine as far as the Clapboard islands in Casco bay. 5 A thor-

Waldron, John Cutt. Elias Stileman and Charles Frost special magistrates, to see that the 
people of Yorkshire were " religiously governed." Infra, fol. 56.

ough partisan of the Massachusetts government, Weare dropped 
out of sight during the administration of the justices appointed 
by the commissioners for New England ; but in 1668 he had his 
reward. His records show that he was poorly qualified for the 
office to which he was then appointed. In an age when spelling 
was largely a matter of personal choice, his orthography was lam- 
entable ; and his handwriting was worse than his spelling. The 
labor of writing was so irksome to him that he frequently em- 
ployed Rishworth to make the records to which he affixed his 
clumsy signature. In 1669 Rishworth was again elected record- 
er, and again the court set aside the election and appointed Weare, 
who was also chosen an associate and reelected as county treas- 
urer. 1 But in 1670 Rishworth was sent as deputy from York to 
the general court and was admitted to his seat in May, on sub- 
mitting an apology, in writing, for his imprudence in accepting 
commissions from Gorges and from the king's commissioners. Be- 
ing thus restored to favor, he was again elected recorder by the 
popular vote in July, and this third election was allowed to stand. 2 
Weare continued to hold the office of county treasurer until 1676, 
when he was directed to square his accounts. He was also town 
clerk and selectman in 1674, and selectman again in 1677. His 
name is mentioned for the last time in 1680. He was then 62 
years old, and probably died not long afterward. He began to be 
called Peter Weare, senior, about 1673. His eldest son, Peter, 
was a carpenter, and removed to Boston. Other children were 
Elias, Joseph, Hopewell, Sarah and Elizabeth. 3 

After Weare's retirement Rishworth was regularly reelected 
recorder for many years. His last entry in the second book of 
deeds is dated June 27, 1676. The records in this volume show a 
rapid extension of land titles and settlements into the interior and 
along the sea coast. The Newichewannock tract in Kittery had 
become a separate parish, known as Unity parish, in 1667. The 
tract four miles square, above Wells and Cape Porpoise, now Ly- 
man, had received the name Coxhall in 1670. The Mousam mills 
had been built by Henry Sayword in 1673, on Cape Porpoise riv-

er, now Mousara river. Major William Phillips was selling wild 
lands on the south side of Saco river up to the Little Ossipee ; and 
beyond that boundary, Francis Small, an Indian trader, was ac- 
quiring land titles. Thomas Stevens had secured in 1673 an ex- 
tensive Indian grant in Wescustogo, afterward North Yarmouth. 
Other Indian deeds are here recorded, on which rest titles in 
Phipsburg, Bath and Bowdoinham. The commissioners for New 
England had appointed justices of the peace to govern the duke 
of York's territory east of the Kennebec, and a book of records 
was opened at Damariscotta in 1665, but documents from Dam- 
ariscove, Pemaquid, Jeremysquam and Wiscasset nevertheless 
found their way to the York registry. 1 

It appears that after the government of Maine had been com- 
mitted to Justice Jocelyn and his associates, in 1665, the authori- 
ties at Boston prohibited the sale of arms and ammunition to the 
people here.2 It is recorded also that in 1676 the general court 
of Massachusetts levied a war tax of ninepence in the pound (37£ 
mills) on property in York county and on the profits of trades- 
men and mechanics, in addition to a poll tax of two and sixpence. 3 
This is the oppressive tax of which 121 inhabitants of Maine 
complained to the king in 1678, asking him to restore the provin- 
cial government established by his commissioners. 4 But they 
were too late. Gorges had already sold his province to the agent 
of Massachusetts. 

Ferdinando Gorges, it seems, visited New England in 1674. In 
August of that year he witnessed Nathaniel Fryer's conveyance of 
Champernon's island at Piscataqua to Thomas Deane of Bos- 
ton. 5 Isaac Addington of Boston also witnessed the deed. He 
was then 29 years old, a surgeon by profession, but was afterward 
for many years secretary of the new province of Massachusetts 
Bay, chartered by William and Mary in 1691. It was in 1674 
that the project of buying the Gorges claim was seriously taken 
in hand by Governor Leverett, who was so eager for it that he of- 
fered to be personally responsible for £500 of the purchase mon- 
ey. 6 The bargain was concluded in 1677.

The original proprietor of Maine says, in his Brief Narration of 
Undertakings for the Advancement of Plantations in America, that 
he divided the province in 1639 into "eight bailiwicks or coun- 
ties," and eight deputies to the general assembly were to be " elect- 
ed by the freeholders of the several counties." 1 The names of 
two of these counties have now been recovered. In several con- 
veyances recorded in the first book of deeds, Thomas Gorges 
mentions " Wells in the county of Somerset"; and in the second 
book, Edward Godfrey twice describes himself as " of Gorgeanain 
the county of Devon." 2 It appears that the eight counties included 
the plantations at Piscataqua, Agamenticus, Wells, Cape Porpoise, 
Saco, Black Point, Casco and Wescustogo or Pejepscot, and ex- 
tended inland to the limit of the patent, 120 miles from the coast. 
The Mason claim to the province of New Hampshire is also ex- 
hibited in this volume, so far as Robert Mason chose to press it 
in 1664. In October, 1666, the Maine justices sent Roger Plaisted 
to New York with dispatches for Governor Nicolls. The messen- 
ger was five weeks in making the journey, and longer in return- 
ing. The dispatches touched upon various topics, and for one 
thing notified the governor that the timber and especially the 
masts on the Mason property were like to be cut and carried away, 
unless the trespassers should be restrained, and recommended Nich- 
olas Shapleigh of Kittery for agent to protect the premises. The 
governor sent back ten documents to be recorded. 1. A certified 
copy of an indenture from the New England council, April 22, 
lp35, conveying the lands of New Hampshire to Captain John 
Mason. 2. A certified copy of a grant by the council to Mason, 
on the same day, of the same lands, with authority to establish 
courts and govern the province. 3. A copy of the complaint of 
Robert Mason and others to King Charles II, alleging that the 
Massachusetts colony had deprived them of their lands and other 
property in New England "by strong hand and menaces." 4. The 
king's answer, Nov. 17, 1660, referring the complaint for exami- 
nation to certain lords and gentlemen. 5. The report of the 
referees, finding that the Massachusetts people had in fact invaded 
and encroached upon the plantations and inheritances of the pe- 
titioners and other British subjects. 6. The petition of Robert 
Mason and another, asking the king to refer the matter to the 
further examination of the newly appointed commissioners for

New England. 7. Robert Mason's letter, May 4, 1664, to Colonel 
Nicolls, one of the commissioners, enclosing, 8. A letter of attor- 
ney authorizing Nicolls to let any New Hampshire lands at his 
discretion, to collect the rents, and to appoint other attorneys un- 
der him at pleasure. 9. A letter of attorney from Nicolls to 
Nicholas Shapleigh, authorizing him to take care of the estate and 
especially to prevent the cutting of masts and other timber with- 
out license. 10. An abstract of Robert Mason's title, derived 
from his grandfather, John Mason. Rishworth was a week in 
copying these papers, which fill ten folios in the record book. 1 

At my request, Mr. Sargent undertook to prepare a sketch of 
the history of the Mason claim, to accompany and illustrate these 
documents. While engaged upon this work he was fortunate 
enough to hear of an important manuscript in the possession of 
Mr. Moses A. Safford of Kittery, who kindly allowed him to ex- 
amine the book. It is a beautifully written and well preserved 
folio of 84 pages, containing a complete collection of the proofs 
of John Mason's title to property in New England. Most of the 
documents are certified by Richard Chamberlain, secretary of the 
province of New Hampshire, in the year 1683. Chamberlain was 
secretary from 1680 to 1686, and was a warm friend of Robert 
Mason, who in 1683 recovered thirty or forty judgments in New 
Hampshire against the principal landholders there. The inference 
is irresistible, that the Safford manuscript was offered as evidence 
of Mason's title at these trials. The judgments, however, w^ere 
of little use to the proprietor. Nobody would take a lease of the 
property awarded to him, and as soon as the officers were out of 
sight the evicted tenants returned to their homes. Mason died in 
1688, and three years later his sons sold their New England inher- 
itance to a London merchant named Samuel Allen. John Usher, 
who had married one of Allen's daughters, was interested in the 
fruitless litigation which followed, and the Safford manuscript has 
been preserved in the Usher family for nearly two hundred years. 

When Mr. Sargent came to examine this volume, he made a sur- 
prising discovery. There have been occasional references to a 
royal charter confirming John Mason's right to New Hampshire 
and conferring upon him powers of jurisdiction there. Robert 
Mason, in his petition to Charles II, claimed under a patent grant- 
ed by his majesty's royal father, 2 and the lords and gentlemen to

whom the petition was referred, reported that John Mason had 
letters patent under the great seal of England, granted by King 
Charles I. But the patent, if it ever existed, disappeared and 
could not be found. John Mason's will was made Nov. 26, 1635> 
and he died not long afterward. Sir Ferdinando Gorges is re- 
ported as saying in 1636, that Mason, if he had lived, would have 
taken a patent from the king. The historians of New Hampshire 
have generally accepted this statement, though it does not come 
from Gorges directly but at second hand through George V^aughan. 
And now, after two hundred and fifty years, Mr. Sargent found 
in the Safford manuscript a copy of the missing charter, granted 
Aug. 19, 1635, the only copy which is known to have survived to 
these days, authenticated by Secretary Chamberlain and preserved 
among other well known muniments of the Mason title. 

In the introduction which follows this preface, Mr. Sargent 
prints the Mason charter by permission from Mr. Safford, and 
gives excellent reasons for regarding it as genuine. In the same 
manuscript, Mr. Sargent found a hitherto unpublished grant, Sept. 
17, 1635, from Gorges to Mason, conveying a tract three miles 
wide on the eastern side of Newichewannock river, from the 
entrance of the river to its source. This grant belongs to the 
record of Maine land titles, and is printed in Mr. Sargent's intro- 
duction. Copies of both documents have been sent to Mr. John 
Ward Dean for his monograph on Captain John Mason, soon to be 
published by the Prince Society. 

The manner in which the records at Alfred have been tran- 
scribed and printed, is described in the preface to the first book, 
where will also be found an explanation of the contractions in 
the text.

INTRODUCTION. 



The series of documents printed on folios 14 to 23 in this vol- 
ume, is of remarkable historical importance, and worthy of some 
space by way of explication. 

Colonel Richard Nicolls was appointed by King Charles II one 
of the royal commissioners for New England, in 1664. He took 
up his residence in New York, where he resided for four years. 
By the power, recorded folios 19 and 20, Colonel Nicolls was ap- 
pointed general attorney for Robert Mason, the grandson and heir 
of Captain John Mason, the patentee of the province of New 
Hampshire. Finding his place of residence so remote as to pre- 
clude that personal supervision requisite for the " manageing & pres- 
ervation of the sayd estate," availing himself of the power of 
substitution, Colonel Nicolls delegated his power to Major Nicho- 
las Shapleigh, who had been recommended to him as a fit person 
by the Justices of Maine. 1 These documents were placed upon 
record in the province of Maine by Major Shapleigh to evince his 
authority. 2 

From a perusal of the deed and patent from the Council of New 
England to his grandfather, and from the statement of his title, 3 it 
is apparent that Robert Mason, at this time, rested his claim to 
the lands and to the quit-rents he expected to derive from the 
large number of settlers upon them, mainly upon the grants of 22 
April, 1635; that he was more intent upon revenues than govern- 
ment, and although there are some suggestions as to acts of au- 
thority in his rather loose letter to Colonel Nicolls, in his practical 
power no such delegation of authority is attempted, but cold cash 
and regular rentals are aimed at. 

These grants were embodied in the deed poll and the indenture, 
folios 14 — 15 and 15 — 17. Without entering upon a discussion of 
their technical differences, it is to be noticed that the second as- 
sumed to assign jura regalia and was to be upon the tenure of 
personal fealty and attendance.

14 Introduction. 

That Mason ever had any other foundation for his claim besides 
the above and the previous grants from the Council of New Eng- 
land, of 9 March, 1621, and 7 Nov. 1629, has been vehemently 
denied by his opponents. The arguments adduced by such oppo- 
nents against the existence of any royal confirmation of the above 
grants, or charter such as was granted by King Charles I in 1639 
to Sir Ferdinando Gorges, of the province of Maine, are substan- 
tially the following: 

1. The letter of George Vaughan to Ambrose Gibbons, dated 
London, 10 April, 1636, wherein he writes: " Mr. Mason being 
ded and S r Ferdinando [Gorges] minding only his one divityon. 
He teles me he is a geting a pattente for it from the king from Pas- 
cataqua to Sagadehocke, and that betwene Meremacke and Pis- 
cataqua he left for Mr. Mason, who if hee had lived would a tooke 
a pattent for that also." 1 

2. The fact that none of Mason's heirs ever attempted to assume 
government over the province by virtue of any royal confirmation 
of the above grants. 

3. That Robert Mason did not produce in evidence any charter 
to the Lords Chief Justices in 1677, or before the King in Council 
in 1691. 

4. Repetition of Belknap's mis-quotation of the Lords Chief 
Justices; he in his text making them report that Mason had "no 
right of government within the soil he claimed." 2 

5. That the Lords of Trade in a report to the King in 1753 
say, "It is alleged that this last grant to Mason was ratified and 
confirmed by the crown by charter dated Aug. 19, 1635, with full 
power of civil jurisdiction and government, but no such charter as 
this appears upon record." 8 

To answer fully such allegations, with citations of all references 
pertinent, would protract argument beyond the limits of the space 
available for these memoires pour servir ; but a few suggestions 
are offered with the purpose of inviting discussion and the hope 
that others will be drawn out. 

The alleged letter of Vaughan is open to suspicion : it is not 
improbable that it is an ingenious forgery, penned by the same 

crafty hand that wrote the bogus Wheelwright Indian deed, 4 in-

stigated by Mason's unscrupulous opponents. i Or, if it is con- 
ceded to be a genuine letter, Vaughan was one of the stewards 
whose interests, personal and family, 2 caused him to readily enter 
the opposition to his late employer's heirs, and such interested tes- 
timony, aside from its being confessedly merely hearsay, should be 
received with great caution. 

When Robert Mason attained his majority the Commonwealth 
had been established in England, and though he did lay his peti- 
tion before Parliament, 8 it was without much hope of obtaining 
relief. During the interregnum the few trespassing squatters up- 
on his American inheritance increased to above a thousand fami- 
lies, 4 too numerous and powerful to be ejected or forcibly gov- 
erned, and the opposition to a proprietary form of government, 
steadily growing among this increasing population, made the as- 
sumption of governmental rights and obligations distasteful to 
him. 6 

Upon the restoration, when he began his efforts to regain his 
grandfather's landed possessions in New England, Robert Mason 
was yet a young man. Two courses were open to him. He might 
assert the royal chaiter of 1635, from King Charles I, and with 
reasonable probability count upon royal favor and support; or he 
might rely on the grants and deeds of the fee from the Council of 
New England, contenting himself with some subordinate position 
in the government, and solacing himself for the loss of vice-regal 
dignities with a heavy rent roll. 

Though Mason did not attempt to set up any proprietary gov- 
ernment such as was authorized by the royal charter, he never 
ceased to assert his right so to do 6 until forced to select which 
course he would choose in the arguments at the hearing in 1677. 
Until then he was continuously endeavoring to obtain royal recog- 
nition and a confirmation, pending the consideration of his repeat- 
ed offers to surrender his charter to the king 7 and to accept some 
smaller estate, with the view of enhancing the consideration he

should receive for such surrender. The favor with which such 
proposals were regarded, is shown by the records. 1 Upon advice 
he then elected to base his claim upon the undoubted title to the 
lands by the three conveyances from the Council of New England 
repeatedly adjudged good and favorably reported upon. 2 

Having made such election it would have been futile to produce 
the charter in evidence, and by the advice of his counsel he refused 
to again submit the question of the validity of his charter, there 
being now no question raised by himself as to his rights thereun- 
der, and that being already res adjudicata. 3 It would not have 
strengthened his title to the lands to have proved again that his 
ancestor had the right of government. On the other hand it 
might have prejudiced his recovery of the lands in controversy 
before a jury of the inhabitants, to whom such questions of title 
necessarily had to be submitted, who might have gone willingly 
to the length of submitting to the imposition of rents, but would 
undoubtedly have rebelled at being saddled with a proprietary 
government. The result of the trials in 1683, attests the shrewd- 
ness of this advice, for he did obtain favorable verdicts in the 
forty or more suits he brought to sustain his title. 4 

It is only necessary to compare the actual language of the Lords 
Chief Justices in their report 5 to understand how fallacious is Dr. 
Belknap's quotation alluded to above. Mason's counsel never 
" agreed he had no right of government within the soil he 
claimed"; they only " waived any pretence" thereto by virtue of 
the grants of government from the Council of Plymouth, "con- 
ceding that no such power or jurisdiction could be transferred or 
assigned [therein] by any colour of law." And as above pointed 
out, they declined to again go into the question of the validity of 
the royal charter, resting content when " the respondents did dis- 
claim title to the lands claimed by the petitioners." 

While it is almost incomprehensible that no copy of this charter 
of 1635 should have been discoverable upon record or on file, yet 
it must be remembered that up to the time of the hearing in 1677, 

1 See inter alia 2 Sainsbury's Colonial Papers, 706. 2 Jenness, N. H. Doc. 96. 

3 1 Belknap, app. xv. The Lords Chief Justices expressly say that they received from 
Mason and others " such papers of their cases as they were pleased to deliver," showing 
that they knew that all of Mason's extreme rights were not insisted on.

Introduction. 17 

no copy of the now recognized and conceded charter of 1639 to 
Gorges had been recorded or filed. 1 

There is a very strong probability that the elder Lord Claren- 
don took such copies or drafts as were on tile in the state paper 
office, in 1662, when he was examining Robert Mason's claims, and 
when he received from Mason the records of the council for New 
England from 1620 to 1635. The records, and presumably the 
charter also, had not been returned at as late a date as May, 1678, 
and from the correspondence on record it is doubtful if either was 
ever discovered ; 2 certainly the council records have never come 
to light. 8 This presumption is greatly strengthened by Lord Clar- 
endon's language in his memoranda of "Considerations," etc. 4 

On the other hand it has always been asserted by Mason and his 
assigns that Kino: Charles I did, on the 19 August, 1635, by royal 
charter confirm to Captain John Mason the estates granted by the 
Council of New England, with powers of government and civil 
jurisdiction. This is asserted in the petition of 1660, 5 by Mason 
and others, "That your petitioners by pattents granted by yo r 
Majestys most Royall father" etc. ; and upon the production of 
"divers letters Patients"* examination of witnesses and a full 
hearing of the claims, the lords to whom this petition was referred, 
reported, " Wee find that Cap* John Mason, grandfather to Rob- 
ert Mason, one of the petitioners, & Edw: Godfrey one other of 
the petitioners, by virtue of sever all letters patents vnder the great 
seal of England granted vnto them <£ others by yo r Majestys late 
Royall father, by them selues <& thejr assignes, have been in Actuall 
& quiett possession of sever all tracts Prcells & devissions of Land, 
in New England, as in & by the sd letters patents is particidarly 



Again in his and Gorges's petition to the King in 1677, Mason 
asserts his right to govern "by virtue of Grants ffrom yo r Mafts 
Royal Predecessors" 1 

The agents of Massachusetts answer and combat Mason's claim 
to "the Title of Sole Proprietor of the Province of New Hamp- 

J The agents of Massachusetts set forth that after diligent search " in the Chapel of the 
Rolls as in other offices," they had been unable to find a record of the alleged grants to 
Mason and Gorges. They therefore prayed that an order should issue to those claimants 
to furnish them with copies of the papers on which they relied. 3 Palfrey's New England,

sheir," admitting that it was claimed from "Six yeares after the 
obteyning of the Charter of the Massachusetts," 1 i. e. from 1635. 

Mason in his quarrels with his opponents in 1681, threatened 
that " if we [they] comply not w th him he will Imediately returne 
for England & reassume his Goverm* of the place long Agone 
granted (as he saith) to his Ancestors, (though of late modestly 
by hiraselfe delivered up to yo r M;ij ty ) & then chuse his own Coun- 
cil & proceed as he thinks meet." 2 

John Tufton Mason and Robert Tufton Mason, sons and heirs 
of Robert Mason, by two deeds, dated 14 Oct. 1690, 3 and 27 April, 
1691, 4 for £2750, 5 conveyed all their New England estates to Sam- 
uel Allen, a London merchant. The last deed contains this recital 
in the transfer of the muniments of title : "And alsoe all those 
Letters Pattents heretofore granted by his late Maj tie King Charles 
the first, and Cap*. John Mason P]sq r Great Grandfather or An- 
cestor of them the said John Tufton Mason and Robert Tufton 
Mason, beareing date on or about the Nineteenth day of Aug* in 
the Eleaventh year of his said Reigne." 

Hubbard, the Massachusetts historian, writing before 1694, states 
that Captain John Mason had his grant confirmed in the year 
1635, though on another page he contradicts his own statement. 6 

In the statement of Allen's Title 7 printed in pamphlet form in 
Boston, 1728, is an abstract of the royal charter of 19 Aug. 1635. 

Dr. William Douglass says: "Anno 1635, Aug. 19, King 
Charles, by patent, confirms this grant called New Hampshire, 
with power of government and jurisdiction (as in the palatinate 
or bishopric of Durham), with power of conferring honours ;" 8 and 
again: " The corporation or company called the Council of Ply~ 
mouth, or Council of New England, made many grants of proper- 
ty, but could not delegate jurisdiction ; therefore to supply this 
defect, some of these grantees obtained additional royal charters 
with power of jurisdiction ; Mr. Mason, 1635, Sir Ferdinando 
Gorge, 1639, obtained royal patents." 9 

In an advertisement by the claimants under Allen, printed in 
the Boston Post Boy, 20 Nov. 1749, the charter is also distinctly 
named and its date given. 10

Introduction. 19 

It appears certain, beyond any reasonable doubt, from the cer- 
tificate appended to the copy of the royal charter, now for the 
first time printed, that the original charter was produced at the 
trial of* the case, Mason vs. Waldron, at Great Island, in 1683, 
and that it, or this certified copy, was put in evidence; but so un- 
scrupulous have been the means adopted to blot out all evidence 
of Mason's proprietorship, that the clerk of the supreme court at 
Exeter, writes officially, "I know of no record in the case of Ma- 
son v. Waldron. In the volume of provincial court records, for 
1683 the pnges presumably containing something ham been cut 
from the book in the register's office." 1 

By the reasons of appeal in Allen vs. Waldron, in 1707, 2 it ap- 
pears that the plaintiff put in " Royal grants," but in the printed 
papers of that case only the one from King James I to the Coun- 
cil of New England is preserved, while that from King Charles I 
has been abstracted from the files with the same sinister intent 
that prompted the mutilation of the court records. 

Reasoning a priori there is nothing improbable in supposing 
Captain John Mason to have had influence enough with King 
Chnrhs I to obtain this royal charter, since by such feudal grants 
in America, the Stuarts thought to establish a system of govern- 
ment which they considered suitable for this country. Everything 
points to a contrary conclusion. He had been governor of New- 
foundland, governor of Portsmouth, treasurer and paymaster of 
the royal armies, and commissioned vice-admiral of New England, 
and so far from such a grant being an exceptional case, as Sulli- 
van 8 from insufficient information stated, it was but a merited re- 
ward in recognition of his continued faithful services, placing him 
on an equality with the other participants in the royal bounty 
among whom the new world was then being parcelled out. 4 

Tiiis charter is here* printed in full. Its very existence has been 
heretofore acrimoniously denied by interested parties. It has re- 
mained all these years in the possession of descendants of Lieu- 
tenant-Governor John Usher, 5 and is one of twenty-two manu-

B Usher married Elizabeth, daughter of Governor Samuel Allen. In his will (28 April, 
1725) in devising some New Hampshire lands to his wife, he could not refrain from thus 
bitterly commenting upon the family experience: " Sa. Allen dying before effected posses- 
si >n taken by Jno. Usher and sent on record Portsmouth Sa Allen Esq kept out possession 
lands in Mason's p;ittent grant as Legall Proprietor as on record & many hundred pounds 
for support and subsistence of sd Allen's family for which never charged one penny." MS .

claimants' attorneys in 16S3, the three last having been subse-

him.

To the Kings Most Excellent Majesty/ 

According to yo r Majestys refference vpon the 
Toy* King petition of Robert Mason, Edward Godfrey & 
others here vnto annexed, bearing date at White 
hall the seaventeenth of Novemb 1 ' 1660 : Wee haue heard the 
Claymes & Complaynts of the Petitioners, & also summoned 
by process publiquely, executed at the Exchange, [18] on 
the xxi th day of Janvary last, agajnst all psons Interessed In 



Book II, Fol. 18. 

that business, but none appeared but Cap* John Leverett, 
who acknowledged that formerly hee was Commissionated 
as an Agent of the Corporation of Boston In New England, 
but that now hee had noe authority to appeare or act in thejr 
behalfe/ vpon produceing diverse letters Pattents, & exami- 
nation of Witnesses, Wee find that Cap* John Mason grand- 
father to Robert Mason one of the petitioners & Eclw : 
Godfrey one other of the petitioners by vertue of severall 
Letters patents vnder the great Seal of England granted 
vnto them & others by yo r Majesty s late Roy all father, by 
them selues & thejr assignes, haue been in Actuall & quiett 
possession of severall tracts Prcells & devissions of Land, in 
New England, as In & by the sd letters Patents is pticularly 
expressed/ And that y e sd Cap* John Mason, & the sd 
Edw : Godfrey did expend, & lay out considerable somes of 
Money In settleing Plantations & Collonys there/ 

That the sd Edward Godfrey hath lived there for fiue & 
twenty years haueing vndergone & discharged the office of 
Gover of the Province of Mayn, with much reputation & 
Integrity of Justice, & Indeauoring the regulation & gouer- 
ment of those Prts where hee lived, according to the known 
& settled laws of this Kingdome/ 

That Notwithstanding the sd Edw : Godfrey hath not 
onely been turned out of his sd place of Gouerment, but 
hath been vtterly outed & dispossesd of his lands & estate, 
in that County which the Inhabitants of the Massatusetts 
haue forcebly seized & still do detayne the same from him/ 

That It appeare th as Well by the testimony of Witnesses, 
as by a Coppy of the Letters Patents, that they were not to 
act any thing repugnant to y e laws of England, nor to extend 
thejr bounds & lymitts of the sd Corporation further then 
three Miles Northwards of Merrimacke River; And as a 
memoriall & evidence there of, the Gouerner of the Massatu- 
setts did sett vp an house about 30 years since w c h was 
Called the bound house, & is known by that name to this 
day/ And with devission & assignement or Lott of land the 



Book II, Fol. 18. 

Inhabitants & Patentees of the sd corporation of the Massa- 
tusetts rested contented for the space of sixteen years 
togeather, vntill about the yeare 1652 : they did Inlarge & 
stretch y r lyne aboue three scoore Miles beyond thejr known 
& settled bounds, aforesd ; And haue thereby not onely 
Invaded & Incroached vpon plantations, & Inheritances of 
the petition 1 * 8 & other yo r Majestys subjects, but by Menaces 
& armed forces Compelled y m to submit to thejr vsurped & 
arbitrary goverment, w c h they haue declared to bee Inde- 
pendent of yo r Majestys Crowne of England, & not subordi- 
nate there vnto/ It appeareth further by the Witnesses, that 
y e Collony of the Massatusetts hath for this many years past, 
haue Indeauored to Moddle & Contrive themselues into a 
free state or Coman Wealth, with out any relation to the 
Crowne of England, Assumein^ on them selues the name & 
style of a Conian Wealth, Issueing out of Writts In y r owne 
names, Imposeing of Oaths to bee trve vnto them selues 
contrary to that of Alleagiance, Coyneing of Money with 
thejr own stampe, & signature, exercizing an Arbitrary 
pouer over the estats & Prsons of all such as submitt not to 
thejr goverment, allowing them noe appeals to England, & 
some haue been soe bould as publiquly to affirme, that If his 
Majesty should send them a Governer, That the severall 
Townes & Churches throughout the whoole Countrey vnder 
y r goverment did resolve to oppose him/ And others haue 
sd that before they of New England would or should submitt 
to any appeale to England, they would sell that Countrey or 
plantation to the King of Spaine/ 

That by reason of the pmisses, the sd Robert Mason, & 
Edw : Godfrey, haue been damnifyd In thejr plantations, & 
estates to the valew of fiue thousand pounds, according to 
y e Judgme* & estimation of severall Witnesses, examined In 
y 1 behalfe/ 

But by what Pretence of right or authority, the Massatu- 
setts haue taken vpon them to Proceede & act In such a 
manner doth not appeare to us/ 



Book II, Fol. 18, 19. 

All which Wee most humbly represent to yo r Majesty, In 
duty & obedience to your Comands, not Presumeing to offer 
any opinion In a business of soe high Importance, w r in the 
Publique Interest & Goverment of yo r Majesty, appeares soe 
much Intermix't & Concern'd with the private Interest of the
